The human insulin/INS ELISA kit is used to detect and quantify the concentrations of INS in serum, plasma, cell culture supernates, and tissue homogenates. This kit exclusively recognizes human INS proteins. It adopts a sandwich ELISA technique in which an INS antibody/INS/biotinylated INS complex is formed and develops color reaction after the addition of TMB substrate solution. The intensity of the color is positively relevant to the levels of INS in the sample. This ELISA kit has been confirmed to have high sensitivity, strong specificity, premium precision, and lot-to-lot consistency. See the instructions for more details.

Insulin/INS is the predominant anabolic hormone, promoting carbon energy deposition in the body. Its secretion from beta cells is induced by glucose and Glucagon-like-peptide 1 (GLP-1). It is a critical regulator of glucose metabolism, playing a hypoglycaemic effect. Insulin-glucagon coordination is essential for glucose homeostasis. Insulin resistance and loss of beta-cell function are involved in the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).

Target Background

(From Uniprot)
Insulin decreases blood glucose concentration. It increases cell permeability to monosaccharides, amino acids and fatty acids. It accelerates glycolysis, the pentose phosphate cycle, and glycogen synthesis in liver.
Gene References into Functions
  1. genetic association studies in population of children in Japan: Data suggest that mutations in INS, HNF1A, HNF4A, and HNF1B likely play critical roles in children with insulin-requiring autoantibody-negative type 1 diabetes in the population studied. (INS = insulin; HNF1A = HNF1 homeobox A; HNF4A = hepatocyte nuclear factor 4 alpha; HNF1B = HNF1 homeobox B) PMID: 28597946
  2. Insulin signaling pathway protects neuronal cell lines by Sirt3 mediated IRS2 activation. PMID: 29411439
  3. Insulin promotes progression of colon cancer by upregulation of ACAT1. PMID: 29793481
  4. Data suggest that serum leptin and insulin levels are associated with retinal microvasculature parameters in healthy children and adolescents; higher cardiometabolic risk factors (high serum leptin, insulin, and insulin resistance) correlate with wider retinal arterioles. PMID: 29303782
  5. Data, including studies involving single-cell analysis, suggest that insulin-secreting cells exhibit 3 major states regarding unfolded protein response (UPR): (1) low UPR and low insulin gene expression; (2) low UPR and high insulin gene expression; (3) high UPR and low insulin gene expression. The latter state promotes cell proliferation; UPR appears to mediate recovery from ER stress due to high insulin production. PMID: 29950394
  6. Data confirm that cord blood levels of ghrelin, leptin, and insulin of term newborns correlate with anthropometric parameters at birth (birth weight, head circumference, etc.). PMID: 29320365
  7. Glucose-dependent de-SUMOylation of tomosyn1 at K298 releases syntaxin1A and controls the amplification of exocytosis in concert with a recently-identified tomosyn1-interacting partner; the Ca(2+)-binding protein secretagogin, which dissociates from tomosyn1 in response to Ca(2+)-raising stimuli and is required for insulin granule trafficking and exocytosis downstream of Ca(2+) influx. PMID: 28325894
  8. results indicate that higher cerebrospinal fluid insulin levels are related to impairment in cognitive performance and biomarkers of Alzheimer's disease among women and non-carriers of the APOE varepsilon4 allele PMID: 29154275
  9. single-particle cryo-electron microscopy reconstructions of the 1:2 (4.3 A) and 1:1 (7.4 A) complexes of the insulin receptor ECD dimer with insulin PMID: 29512653
  10. Data suggest that higher plasma levels of ceramide with saturated fatty acid are associated with higher fasting levels of insulin and insulin resistance; in contrast, higher levels of sphingomyelin with saturated fatty acid are associated with lower fasting insulin and insulin resistance; this study was conduced in American Indians in AZ, OK, SD, and ND. PMID: 29588286
  11. in latent autoimmune diabetes in adults, higher leptin secretion may exert a direct effect on beta cell function leading to more insulin sensitivity PMID: 29252126

  13. Data suggest that positive association exists between up-regulated serum C-peptide levels and risks of pre-diabetes and diabetes type 2 among Chinese women with prior gestational diabetes. PMID: 28919328
  14. Data suggest that both a KATP channel-dependent triggering pathway (that induces a [Ca2+]i rise in beta-cells) and an amplifying pathway (that augments the effect of Ca2+ on exocytosis) are crucial for control of insulin secretion in human islets; these studies used cultured pancreatic islets from multiorgan donors exposed to a variety of pharmacological agents. PMID: 28116849
  15. In the present study, the protein inhibitor of activated STAT Y (PIASy) was identified as a novel Isl1-interacting protein. Furthermore, PIASy and Isl1 upregulate insulin gene expression and insulin secretion in a dose-dependent manner by activating the insulin promoter. PMID: 28000708
  16. Muscle-related indices positively correlated with C-peptide, which showed endogenous insulin reserve PMID: 29132475
  17. Data suggest that corticosterone and cortisol suppress voltage-dependent Ca2+ channel function and Ca2+ fluxes in beta-cells; however, insulin secretion, maximal ATP/ADP responses to glucose, and beta-cell identity/differentiation are all unaffected by these glucocorticoids. PMID: 29203512
  18. In long-standing models, glucose is viewed as a primary stimulator of insulin secretion; recent models postulate that glucose activates a cell-surface receptor, namely the glucose-sensing receptor, on insulin-secreting cells. [REVIEW] PMID: 28880472
  19. Data suggest that beta-cell insulin secretory granules, unlike neuronal synaptic vesicles, exhibit biphasic secretory mechanism that requires additional distinct features in exocytosis; beta-cell insulin exocytotic events appear to be mediated by Munc18/SNARE protein complexes distinct from those involved in predocking/fusion of insulin secretory granules with plasma membrane. [REVIEW] PMID: 28880475
  20. Data suggest that glucose-stimulated insulin secretion involves interplay between metabolic and cationic events involving small G-proteins; activation of these signaling proteins promotes cytoskeletal remodeling, transport and docking of insulin granules on the plasma membrane for exocytotic secretion of insulin. [REVIEW] PMID: 28880478
  21. Data suggest that insulin secretory granule turnover consists of several highly regulated processes allowing for proper beta-cell function and insulin secretion. [REVIEW] PMID: 28880479
  22. Data suggest that cAMP acts as amplifier of insulin secretion triggered by Ca2+ elevation in beta-cells; both messengers are also positive modulators of glucagon release from alpha-cells, but in this case cAMP signaling may be the important regulator and Ca2+ signaling has a more permissive role. [REVIEW] PMID: 28466587

  30. Data suggest that secretion of insulin by beta-cells is related to insulin resistance in complex manner; insulin secretion is associated with type 2 diabetes in obese and non-obese subjects, but insulin resistance is associated with type 2 diabetes only in non-obese subjects. Chinese subjects were used in these studies. PMID: 27012460

PMID: 28855269

PMID: 27463367
